I usually watch the entire selection show. After our seed was announced, I just turned it off.
You know I haven't looked yet, but I would guess ok st fans have to feel pretty pissed as well. They just got handed the toughest matchup possible for their seeding.
Better than an 8 or 9 seed
"Release Me Cuhhhhhhhh"
Under-valued and placed in the toughest bracket. We got shafted.
I honestly think the selection committee had a "SENIOR MOMENT". You know a dementia kind of thing. It's obvious they didn't pay much attention to Oregon and the Pac-12. Does Oregon have areas of weakness...yes but the persevered. The facts are this no matter what they think of Oregon, Oregon tied for second in the Pac-12 and was ranked in the top 25 for a large part of the year, and WON the Pac-12 Tournament.
I was listening to Sirius radio and a coach from the selection committee(I think Xavier) was on and talked about some teams that didn't get in but no mention on how they screwed Oregon's seating up.
Oh well just need to kick Oklahoma States ARSE!!!!!!! then they will have to talk about it.
If we beat OKIE STATE we have to play Saint Louis....not an easy game.
Probably has to do with our weak non-conference schedule too.
USC is like a german car, every piece that breaks is of the highest quality.
6 seed: Ariz, 25-7 (12-6) 0-1 vs Oregon
6 seed: UCLA, 25-9 (13-5) 0-2 vs Oregon
10 seed: Colo 21-11 (10-8) 2-0 vs Oregon
12 seed:Cal. 20-11 (12-6) 2-0 vs Oregon
12 seed:Ore. 26-8 (12-6) Conference tournament Champion
The loss to Cal (48-46) at home on Feb. 21 really hurt us.
There were 4 close losses that really hurt.
Dec 19. @ UTEP 91-84, 3OT
Feb 2. @ CAL 58-54
Feb 7. @Colo. 48-47
Feb 21 VS CAL 48-46
Oregon was 5-3 in games decided by 5 points or less, and 4-1 against teams ranked in the Top-25.
Colorado State (25-8, 11-5 MWC) is an 8 seed after finishing 2nd in the Mountain West Conference and going 0-3 against ranked opponents. Middle Tennessee State and Belmont are 11 seeds.

While the Pac-12 conference is truly coming of age in football, there is an obvious outsider perpective that we play in a soft, second-rate wine and cheese conference. It's truly alarming and unsettling just how out of touch the selection committee is about how we roll out here.
They think we are weak-a** conference. Plain and simple. They don't value our wins. They don't vibe of our squads or pump up our highlights. No one knows our playmakers and no one has seen us in central or eastern time zones all year.
Know who has the Pac-12 network? It sure as s**ain't guys on Tobacco Road, up in Wisconsin or back in say, Bristol, Connecticut. They don't respect our game because they are all asleep when we play. They could care less that our bigest OOC win is against a tough but brittle Mountain West school in UNLV (who truly haven't gelled in David Rice's second year, BTW).
If I'm Oregon, I'm pissed. And when I take the floor next week, I rip the other teams to pieces and play fierce, fevered, fast flocking basketball to show the nation how Mighty Oregon rises to the challenge...
Flock U sends its best, committe s***-heads.

Okay, I'm over the 12 seed. I have a new gripe. The Midwest is probably the toughest region in the dance!
Memphis, Creighton, Michigan State, St Louis, Duke and the number 1 overall Louisville. Damn!
No two ways about it we got jobbed. We got robbed.
